    You should really get a lower resolution. 7MB for a gif is waay too much

    A 7 megabyte gif?

    I would hate to think how long that would take to load all the way through...

    How long is the animations (if any) and what are the dimensions of the gif?

    Stupid question, but if it's an advert for a website.... can you not just host it on the website?

    Other than that, look at creating a cheap account on rackspace - it'll be dirt cheap to host (like a few cents/dollars) and the gif would be on a CDN worldwide then which would infinitely speed up the loading of it.

    Hi

    I worked out how to do it from within wordpress - and yes its for an advert on a web site, the biggest i have ever had to use.

    Loads fine as far as i can tell, whole animation is about 4 secs and its 285 x 285, i will have a look at rackspace

    Thanks for the reply
